    Some question?

    1. What do people mean by saying" don't push your luck"?
    2. "Incidence" "incident" in meaning?
    3. How do we pronounce the 's' in files? Isn't it /z/? I heard people pronounce it /s/
    4. What is another word for " a little painful" as in : After working out for the first time, I feel a little painful in my leg
    5. What is the difference between officer and official?
    6. What do they mean by "It's fine by me"? Why not "on me"?
    7. What is the taste of a chewing gum? A noun

    Seems like to many questions but I'm really on the go. Thank you all in advance

    Yes, it is pronounced /z/.

    1. What is another word for " a little painful" as in : After working out for the first time, I feel a little painful in my leg

    My leg is quite sore.

    What do they mean by "It's fine by me"? Why not "on me"?

    The rules regarding prepositions are often without logic. We use by to express permission.

    The other questions can easily be answered using an online dictionary.
